  1. Urban Survival
    I have been hearing of rumors of massive tunnel systems under most large cities such as San Fransisco, New York Los Angeles and Las Vegas. This made me wonder, in areas where bugging out may be nearly impossible due to the traffic and possible violence that may be occurring in the streets, would...

    My parents and younger siblings moved to New York recently, about a half hour from the "Big Apple" itself. I live in Indiana and have some preps and SHTF plans but I am still a novice. How do I talk to my parents about having evacuation routes in case of a disaster? NYC is the LAST place you...

    The volcano blowing its top right now made me think of yellowstone. If i remember correctly, I am right on the edge of where ash would fall, i might get an inch or two. In the event of a sudden eruption, what would you guys do for Garfield and Odie? Last time i checked, they dont sell N95 masks...

    The Pet Emergency Evacuation Jacket offers excellent protection for your small pet's torso. Not their face or legs, mind you, but what do you expect -- it's only $422. :eek:

    Over 9000 acres burned in 9 separate fires in San Diego today, including Carlsbad, San Marcos, Scripps Ranch and Lakeside/El Cajon. With the number of evacuations they called today, it reminds me to check to make sure I have all my key paperwork ready to go at the drop of a hat, and also to be...

    Most discussion of Bug Out Bags (BOB) assume some sort of disaster or collapse here in America or other advanced country. My current need is a good bit different, and I'd appreciate some input from the folks here on the forum. I am the vice president of a non-profit corporation that provides...

    I live in a valley surrounded by thick forested areas in northern California. For the last 2 months there have been several fires raging that have caused smoke to flow in our area. While that has been a minor inconvenience, it finally caused a neighboring town to get evacuated to ours. By...

    My wife has discussed a different sort of BOB with me. She was calling it a FEMA BOB. Her own original concept. Our regular BOBs are designed around the idea of a camping and woodlands living. They include things that FEMA probably won't allow into a shelter. Like guns and big knives. Pretty...

    I am a new member in here, but I’ve been reading for a while before I stared posting, and I read a lot more threads than I post to. I’ve noticed a lot of posts where the experienced preppers seem to expect that when the SHTF, that they expect there’s going to be a mass exodus of the...

    Good evening, everyone. I have a question concerning evacuation and people fleeing cities. We've seen a number of these scenarios in recent memory (Chernobyl, Katrina, unrest in the Balkans, etc.). I'm wondering if any of you know whether anyone has done any computer modeling on how populations...

If people wouldn't mind, I would like tips on mountain survival and evacuation. I have a lot of info and training but I could always use more. Anything...

    Has there ever been, or a study done, of the mechanics of a evacuation of a major city? I'm mostly interested in how many people flee, how many stay, and how many people try the main roads out, and how many go for secondary routes.

    Since i'm a mountainbike enthusiast i believe that mountainbikes would be a most excellent alternative to gas-operated vehicles in a shtf or bug-out scenario for a variety of reasons. There's enough street construction currently happening around here that gridlock is guaranteed in the event of...

    So i was watching re-runs of Jericho last night and something "hit" me. The episode showed 2 guys driving into a deserted town (looking for meds for their dad)...and they stopped in front of a house that had orange spray paint on it. The one guy commented that FEMA had evacuated the whole town...

    Many people talk about bugging out, and unless you have been in the military you really have no idea of what all is involved. I am not saying it can’t be done but I would bet that most of you never had to bug out before. Now some people here actually have a bug out location and that is great...
